Around one in three people aged over 65 fall each year, sometimes resulting in broken bones and even hospitalisation.
Worse, falling can shatter a person’s confidence, leading to a spiral of physical decline and loss of independence.
But innovative working by Dorset HealthCare is helping many older people in Bournemouth and Poole get back on their feet – and successfully stay there.

These decisions will set the strategic blueprint for healthcare in Dorset for the next five to ten years, and the new arrangements will transform the way Dorset HealthCare delivers its services.
